- Is My Idea Patentable?
The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) asks a number of questions when determining whether an idea can be patented. These questions include: Is the idea sufficiently novel or new? If it is improving on an existing idea, is this a nonobvious improvement? A skilled, knowledgeable attorney will answer these and other questions.
- How Much Will It Cost To Work With A Patent Lawyer?
At the Eldredge Law Firm, we charge all patent and intellectual property work on a flat-fee basis. This approach saves our clients thousands of dollars and offers certainty as to legal fees, without sacrificing the quality of our work. Attorney Richard G. Eldredge has the professional and educational background required to effectively advance his clients' interests. His depth and breadth of experience allows him the ability to streamline the process and pass savings on to his clients.
- How Fast Can I Get A Patent?
It can take the USPTO two years or longer to issue a patent. At the Eldredge Law Firm, we recognize that time is of the essence and can complete the initial application process in one week or less. By completing computer-aided design (CAD) drawings himself, Richard Eldredge is able to save weeks or longer off of the application process.
